Covid-19 lockdown has 68% of event organisers evaluating work-life balance

20 May 20201m read

The BMA House has conducted research amongst event buyers which has revealed a significant desire to seek an improved work-life balance.

The research was carried out in April 2020 via an online survey and saw 229 respondents, including 79 event organisers and 150 event delegates.

With Covid-19 providing an opportunity for individuals to focus on family, leisure and personal relationships, 68% of event organisers said they aim to seek a better work-life balance going forward.

This was reflected by 60% of event delegates also saying they would seek improvements.

In support of this balance, 87% of organisers and 92% of delegates said more people should be offered the opportunity to work from home in the long term.

Kat Winfield, venue manager, BMA House, said: “Before reflecting on the organiser statistics, I must stress that a number of the delegates answering this survey are key workers and medical professionals.”

“These individuals have continued to work tirelessly, putting themselves in danger over recent weeks, many isolating away from family and loved ones. They have not had a chance to consider a different work-life balance as they are working so hard for the benefit of all and for that they deserve our heartfelt respect and thanks.”

Winfield concluded that the figures demonstrate how eventprofs are seeing the lockdown as a significant opportunity to re-evaluate their lives and focus more on themselves and their family, which is something BMA House strongly supports.
